    It all started with fun and games
    followed by the horrible pain
    Alice comes out to play again
    The game equals love
    The love equals pain
    So she goes out and seeks it again
    That is how this all began
    Split in two
    my mind and soul
    Sitting at the bottom of a very dark hole
    Dont show her the light
    She will just run and hide in shame
    consumed by all her pain
    It all started with fun and games
    so very long ago.
    please help me........

    Yes, we start out fresh and can become disillusioned
    Because life doesn't treat us the way life should be
    We read books and watch movies which feed the illusion
    That life should be great, for the star in it, - ME!

    Then we see that our ego desires attention
    But not really, - we're human and want to do good
    For our time on the planet, most won't leave a mention
    But it does all still matter, 'cos we feel that it should

    When we're on the Big Dipper and can't face the climb
    It helps to think thoughts which are high and sublime
    That the darkness is where new seeds start to grow
    But until they are seen nobody will know

    That the shoot growing up through the dirt's really there
    And wants to see sun and enjoy the fresh air
    Although planted in soil, it's roots can transform
    The dark and the muck into beauty reborn.:dancing_flowers:

    UrPrecious~ Thank you so very much for the beautiful reply. Though my poem is about a childhood memory triggered by a recent event, I do know someday I will heal from it and not be sitting in the dark so often. Thank you again.

    Thank you pisces for your reply too - the most amazing thing about having written about seeds growing in dirt and muck and darkness, pushing towards the light, is that after posting it I went off to church and the homily was all about...... you guessed it!.... seeds germinating in the dark and the dirt and pushing towards the light, lol!

    I applaud you knowing that one day you will heal from your memory and be able to integrate it into the stronger person you are becoming, bless you :)
